When Should I Get a Lawyer for a Car Accident in Virginia?
Bringing a car accident lawyer into your claim at the right time can make a huge difference in the amount of compensation you will receive and your overall well-being. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, it's still in your best interest to speak to an attorney about your case as soon as possible. An experienced Virginia car accident lawyer can give you advice on your present situation and help you avoid any mistakes that might harm your claim.
Here are some additional indicators that it may be time to involve a car accident attorney in your case:
- You are being pressured by the at-fault driver's insurance company to accept an offer.
- Your injuries are severe, requiring lengthy medical treatment and preventing you from working.
- The at-fault driver is disputing fault, claiming that you are to blame for all or part of the crash.
- Your accident involved a commercial or government vehicle such as a semi-truck or city bus (these cases have very complex laws).
The important thing to understand is that you don't have to go through this alone. The Virginia car accident lawyers at Kalfus & Nachman PC can provide the support you need during this difficult time. We make it our business to guide individuals and families who were wrongfully injured to a favorable resolution of their case, giving them peace of mind that all details of their case will be taken care of.

Determining Who is Responsible for Your Accident
In the aftermath of a wreck, it is sometimes obvious who is at fault. For example, if you were rear-ended by another vehicle, there is usually little question who is liable. However, in other situations, it may be unclear who – or what – was at fault for the accident. Besides the other driver, a defective vehicle part overlooked by a manufacturer or a hazardous roadway ignored by local government entities may have played a role in your accident.
In order to find out, you need the resources of an experienced car accident attorney in Virginia. At Kalfus & Nachman PC, we work with seasoned investigators and expert witnesses to reconstruct your accident, gathering all the evidence we need to build a strong case on your behalf. We will also help you to know what to do after a car accident.
Can I Recover My Medical Expenses?
Yes, medical expenses are recoverable in the average car accident claim. Medical expenses are usually the number one reason why people decide they need to file a car accident claim after an accident and not just depend on whatever the other insurance company wants to give them. With a successful claim, your past and future medical expenses should be covered entirely by the liable driver, up to their insurance cap. Even at that point, though, there might be other applicable insurance policies to file against for any remaining, unpaid medical expenses.
Can I Recover Lost Wages Due to a Car Accident?
Yes, you can seek lost and reduced wages through a car accident claim. For example, if you miss a month of work because of your injuries, then you can demand a month’s worth of your wages. If you receive employer-provided disability benefits that pay some of your missing wages, then you can still sue for the gap between those benefits and the normal amount. If your injuries are permanent and keep you from pursuing advancements in your career, then you could sue for future wages you will now not get the chance to earn.
Is My Claim Worth Pursuing?
Yes, every claim is worth pursuing to some point. At the least, you should always talk to a professional car accident attorney about what happened to get their valuable and experienced input. They can tell you if your claim has a high enough value or strong enough evidence in your favor to pursue. For example, claims dealing with only a few hundred dollars or a couple of thousand dollars are generally straightforward enough to not require an attorney’s assistance. Or if there is strong evidence that shows you were 100% liable for the crash, then a plaintiff’s attorney would likely be unable to accept your case.
